How to Beat the Winter Blahs

 Apart from taking a vacation to warmer climes, what’s a person to do to lift their spirits in the middle of winter? Buy new plants, pots and dirt and repot them!

I had been meaning to repot several plants that I’d purchased some time ago, but never got around to. So with a warm, sunny day on my side I set out for a plant store in Madison that I knew carried wonderful, healthy plants.

I purchased a yellow Kalanchloe (to go with the new paint in my kitchen) and variegated ivy and potted them in a new pot . . .

I also purchased a Maidenhair fern and repotted it in it’s new pot . . .

Then I set about repotting the plants I already had . . .

Next time I’m in the city I’m going to purchase some moss to put at the base of the plants which I think will look nicer.

I created quite a mess in the kitchen . . . gardening is dirty work!  So you see, even in the midst of winter it’s nice to dig in the dirt and create something beautiful in the house to help get through the next few months until spring.

Until next time . . .
